I really really couldn't recommend this place more! It was truely so special and I absolutely loved my time here! Ben and Monsy have created something very special and the hostel really felt like home, I will miss the hostel and the hostel very much. The hostel itself is very homely and I met the best people here ♡ the job was really great as well, it's a breeze when you care about the place and the people so much! Thanks for everything Ben and Monsy! I will be back!

This was my first Worldpackers experience and it was amazing! Ben is a great boss and was extremely personable. The other workers and guests at the hostel were also amazing and made this place really feel like a home. I definitely recommend this place to everyone!

The crew and ben are so lovely, I enjoyed my time and had a lot of fun with everyone. The work is pretty easy and the faster you work, the earlier you have your free time. The hostel is small and it is perfect to get in touch with a lot of travelers from all over the world. Ben took us on a day trip what was so much fun.
